About the Artist

The jazz supergroup SHEroes, convened by pianist-composer Monika Herzig for a fourth recording by distinguished improvising virtuosos who are all, not just incidentally, women. Monika's deft, always supportive pianism and her warm, joyous, practical sensibility marks every tune with SHEroes on All In Good Time (Zoho, 2024). The group celebrates the 10th Anniversary in 2024 with this set of modern, sophisticated instrumentals produced by Jazz Master Lenny White and supported by a Performance Plus Grant from Chamber Music America. Guest Sheroes have included Ingrid Jensen, Linda Oh, Ada Rovatti, Jane Bunnett, Camille Thurman, Lakecia Benjamin, Leni Stern, Mayra Casales, among others and the group has appeared at major international festivals and clubs including Jazz Tales in Egypt, Women in Jazz Festival, Germany, Porgy & Bess, Vienna, Birdland, New York, and many more. Herzig is also author of “David Baker: A Legacy in Music” (IU Press, 2011), “Experiencing Chick Corea” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2017) and co-editor of “Jazz and Gender” (Routledge, 2022). Her composition Just Another Day in the Office is featured in the Berklee Press (2022) collection: New Standards: 101 Lead Sheets by Women Composers. SHEroes features an international cast of players based in the US and Austria. Each member is a first call, in demand artist for multiple groups and a leader/composer/arranger in her own right.
